Halloween trick-or-treating is a fun tradition for us and I am assuming for many of you! I was curious what everyone passes out? My daughter was recently diagnosed with a tree nut allergy so I am looking for inspiration of what I can pass out that is allergy-friendly for most kids. What is your go-to trick-or-treat giveaway?

    We started handing out snacks a few years ago (mini bags of pirate's bootie, muddy buddies, etc.) I was shocked at how excited kids were to get something other than candy. Plus, if we have leftovers, they go in the kids' lunch, and I'm not tempted to eat everything myself!

    We do candy but we also have a lot of kiddos with allergies in our neighborhood so we put out a teal pumpkin to let trick-or-treaters know that we also have non-food or candy items such as temporary tattoos, bubbles, pencils, halloween themed toys...I always find great deals and items like these at the halloween section at Target.

      What a great idea! I'm gonna do that this year!

        It’s a national campaign called The Teal Pumpkin Project. They hope to raise awareness for food allergies - heard about it a couple of years ago and we’ve been doing it every year since. foodallergy.org

    If I passed out anything too delicious, trust me, it'd be very difficult to resist eating it myself. So, I pass out lollipops. I don't care for them, but kids seem to & they are fine to "safely" keep in the house for months.

    I always feel guilty about buying candy, especially since the leftovers stay in the pantry! I want to move to handing out small toys instead.

    We stick with candy and I agree, I try to buy something I won’t eat before Halloween. I love that a lot of stores offer snacks now that are perfect for trick or treat. My kids love getting those too but candy is their favorite by far.
